Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer
Have Whirlpool LER4634EQ2 dryer. Runs for just a few moments and shuts off and appears to be overheating. Have cleaned entire exhaust path spotless. Airflow through the vent outside is very good. Bin is tumbling and fan is blowing.
I saw other suggested solutions that all said the airflow path has to be clean. I am sure this one is.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
Ok, this sounds like it could be what is know as your machine's "Thermal Internal Bias" (TIB) device (Whirlpool part #: 3387134). It's @ $15 I think and easily accessed by removing the rear panel of the dryer. It is attached to the blower housing located on the lower left as your are facing the dryer.
It's designed to "cut-out" if the dryer temp is too great at the blower. After the air cools a bit it comes the dryer contines operating. Your TIB my be getting weak and not so hardy as to tolerate the high temps. Replace and give it a try.
Remember to unplug your dryer before attempting this! Safety first and always!

I ran into the same issue. I know this is an older post, but in case anyone else comes across it there is a thermal fuse, located just above the Thermal Internal Bias. The part number is 3392519 and it is called Thermal Fuse.
